||Record Kicks proudly present the Iowa City ambassadors of instrumental soul, The Diplomats Of Solid Sound, featuring three gifted soul sirens The Diplomettes. This 45 is a taster for the forthcoming album (produced by Freestyle Records´s funk supremo Lack Of Afro), to be released on Record Kicks in March 2008. Around since 1998 The Diplomats Of Solid Sound already have 3 albums under the belt, with US indie label Estrus Records, a bunch of 45s for Spanish Boogaloo infected Vampisoul Records, numerous US and Europe tours and a collaboration with legendary funk/r&b producer Andre Williams on his latest release “Aphrodisiac” album. Here on the A side the deep funk mover ‘Plenty Nasty’ and on the B side Lack of Afro reworks the solar ‘Hurt Me So’ into a funky big beat, Jamaican flavoured floorfiller. Essential funk for 2008!
